This historic ruling acknowledges that the athletes are employees of the school. As Eric Scott pointed out on Jim's show this morning, this ruling will surely have wide-reaching ramifications.

In this case, the federal decision was granted to Northwestern University who currently resides in the Big 10 Conference. But what happens when athletes from universities like Notre Dame, Texas, Miami and on a local level, Rutgers, decided they want to unionize?

Jim has said that the athletes should be allowed to unionize as these schools makes millions of dollar a year of athletics.
